Mass Effect 3 Connection Issues

This post and this one on the BioWare Social Network have complaints from players encountering errors when attempting to play Mass Effect 3 multiplayer. Most of this seems to involve being told they require an "online pass," which does not exist for the PC version of the game, as it is used as a way of combating used console game sales. There are also indications that those who own the From Ashes DLC are not even able to play the game in singleplayer mode. There are posts from players claiming they've been told BioWare is working on the problem. Thanks Mark.

Wish they could also fix the inability to connect when you launch ME2.

Every time I launch the game it gives me a "can't connect to EA's servers" and a OK button THAT DOES NOTHING. I have to wait 3-5 min for it to go away before I get the menu. Then miraculously when I click connect it connects.

Go to options and disable EA Online or whatever its called. Then it will just launch into the main menu without any pauses (other than the Steam overlay hiccup). You can still load saves with DLC and whatnot even with it disabled.
